Tamara Mellon - Tamara Mellon Leaves Halston

Tamara Mellon has split from fashion house Halston.

The Jimmy Choo founder's departure from the iconic label follows after designer Marios Schwab, president and chief creative officer Sarah Jessica Parker and investor Harvey Weinstein - who Tamara brought to the company - ended their associations with the label.

After Mario's departure was revealed on Friday (15.07.11) - when he was told his contract will not be renewed - sources claimed the label will not produce a collection for spring/summer 2012 while this year's fall/winter collection may not be completed despite being bought by a number of department stores worldwide.

Although he spoke of his excitement at joining the brand in 2009, Mario has previously admitted he faced a huge challenge to push its aesthetic forward.

He commented: "Of course I feel the pressure. It's a huge challenge but fashion at the moment needs innovation. I would be hesitant to do just one thing - it's important to be able to create and be open-minded.

"For me, the brand is very well known for the women it dressed - Bianca Jagger was a Halstonette - capturing a decadence and glamour. I want to embrace this. But paying homage is one thing but you need to bring it to the future."
